The animals look well taken care of,especially the lemurs which I think are the most fun ones. The zoo is constantly upgrading,building new and improved enclosures and it has grown so much in the past years,so it is so much better that it used to be.
Animals xcelent coffee and peace at city nature. Win-win.
The ZOO is a good idea how to spend time in Skopje. The areal is big, whole visit takes around 2-3 hours. Admission is very cheap 1-2€ per person, you can pay only with denarius - 100 den. There are a lot of animals, but the whole ZOO looks very neglected and scary even.
Honestly if I could give this zoo negative reviews I would. I was there around 4 days ago and the animals were malnourished, the cages were dirty and broken, and there was no fresh water. I am not going into how old anything was because that isn't my problem. My problem was how the animals were treated. There were rats everywhere. People were throwing their trash into the cages with the animals along with scraps of junk food. The bears there started to fight each other over food. I tried to get the people to stop but they didn't care. The toilets were a catastrophe. No toilet paper and the locks were broken and I was locked into the stall. The rest of the zoo was broken and a lot of cages were empty. The staff at the zoo...they were unprofessional. One of the workers spoke English and I told her about the people throwing in trash and food to the animals. Her reply was "it's our culture". Ridiculous. She then proceeded to sit back with her colleagues and ignore me. They were all smoking and drinking beer. Honestly this zoo was pathetic and I feel bad for the animals. It should be shut down.
Been there last week.as soon as you enter you can see that this zoo is not mantained well. Lot of the animals were closed and cannot be seen. Near the bears there were rats. The animals were not cleaned it's like nobody take care of them.
Great place if you want to subject yourself to cruelty. Not clean, not big enough, wrong climates, seems like no conservation work is done, depressed animals, I could go on... just overall a very backwards place and if you think paying a euro justifies a visit to a prison, then this is the place for you. Please don't fund this.
It is the perfect place for people that love animals. The entry fee is extremely small, and it is a lovely experience both for adults and kids.
Big parking, cheap ticket (50 denars) has coffee bars and toilets, worth visiting :)
The worst and the cheapest zoo experience I've ever had. The enclosures are too small and dirty for the animals. A lot of them went crazy because of the small place they have for living. Everything is dirty and/or broken. The only thing I gave 2 stars is because it's unbelievably cheap(less than 1€) and the bears and giraffes are looking great. For all the other animals I feel sorry. Really sorry.
Perfect place for met local and exotic animals and have inreresting half a day
Very good place but in winter everything here is very quiet and lot of animals are inside their room
Like Zoo gardens? This is the best Zoo in Macedonia. Variety of animals and cheap tickets. There's a natural sciense museum, you can visit.

Visually the place needs a bit of refurbishment. It would also help if signs were installed and information idealy in English would be provided. Nonetheless, the animals seem to be kept well with big enclosures. Also great value for money and a wide variety of animals to see from land, sea and air... also a reptile room is available.
They are doing great job. Some cages are empty, somewhere grass is not trimmed, but animals have a lot of space and that is more important then trimmed grass! Great job!
The zoo in general has a decent amount of animals. Some I never saw in other Zoo's before. Although it looks like it's still being built and there is a lot of maintanance going on, the zoo is quite nice. the animals have very big cages comparing to other zoo's I visited. Worth a visit! ALso its not expensive at all!
Not very well kept. Not all animals are in pairs and some have very small cages (Not habitats). Despite this kids will still enjoy it.
Very good place but in winter everything here is very quiet and lot of animals are inside their zoo habitat
